The Reason for Vegan Series is a series of short segments within the Hope for the Animals Podcast that focuses on specific aspects of animal agriculture and answers the question of why we are vegan. Fishes are the forgotten “food” animal and like chickens, are often forgotten in ethical vegan conversations. We are wrapping up our Reason for Vegan Series for the year with a two-part segment on fish.


Reason for Vegan Series 8:
Fish Feel: Sentience, Emotion, and the Latest Science About Fish

In this eighth installment of the Reason for Vegan Series, Hope talks about fish: who they are, what their lives are like, and why we should care about them. She will uncover the emotional, cognitive, and complex lives of fish. Scientists are discovering so much about our underwater cousins and we will dive into that research and answer questions about pain, parenting, emotions, communication, memory, and more.




Reason for Vegan Series 9: The Fishing Industry Exposed

In this ninth installment of the Reason for Vegan Series, Hope talks about the fishing industry. She explores the different commercial fishing methods and how they affect fish. Hope explains how fish farming can be even worse than wild caught fish for individual fishes and for the environment. She also dives into the environmental impacts of fishing and the current state of our oceans.



The Reason for Vegan Series is supplemental to our regular episodes and is perfect for pre-vegans who want to learn more about animal agriculture and veganism, so please share this series with your non-vegan friends. This series is also great for new and existing vegans to get in-depth information about the animal farming industries so they will be excellent advocates for all farmed animals.
